Languedoc weather statistics: Sunshine, Temperature and Rainfall

 

The charts below show how the temperature, sunshine and rain (rainfall) for Languedoc Roussillon, South France differs to a northern European country such as the United Kingdom.

 

Languedoc is much hotter - but also just as cold

 

So how much hotter is the weather in Languedoc Roussillon, south France, compared to the cold and wet climate in the countries of northern Europe? Well, the charts below show that Languedoc Roussillon's temperatures vary more than the UK's - with far higher maximums, especially in summer, but minimums that are, in winter at least, just as cold.

 

Summer in Languedoc can be too hot at times - with temperatures in the mid-30's in July (and the mid-40s in 2003!). May, June and September offer the best weather. The water is warm enough to swim in from May to September.

Languedoc is much sunnier, and mostly drier...

 

It's something you notice most in winter - Languedoc Roussillon is much sunnier than the UK. Which means that, even as temperatures drop to freezing in February - you don't have to suffer that awful low grey ceiling of cloud that hangs over Britain for most of the winter.

 

Rainfall is also lower in Languedoc Roussillon - especially in summer - where the sun can beat down for weeks on end without a drop of rain. Autumn, however, can be very rainy, but rather than miserable British drizzle, it tends to serve up sudden, torrential rain storms that swell the rivers and often cause flooding.
